Daily Devotional – 4/14/17 “Because Jesus lives! “

God sent His son, they called Him, Jesus;
He came to love, heal and forgive;
He lived and died to buy my pardon,
An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives!

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone,
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!

And then one day, I’ll cross the river,
I’ll fight life’s final war with pain;
And then, as death gives way to victory,
I’ll see the lights of glory and I’ll know He lives!

Anybody else got this testimony on this Good Friday? Anybody else yet thankful knowing that because Jesus lives, we get chance after chance? Anybody else, excited to celebrate the rising of a Savior who died to pardon our sins? Knowing that because He lives, we can face a tomorrow we haven’t even seen. Knowing that because Jesus lives, we can mess up and still be forgiven. Knowing that because Jesus lives, we can too. I don’t know who you are but Jesus got up so you could stop allowing fear of the unknown to keep you in a grave of groaning or tarrying in a tomb of transgressions. The seal has been cut, the rock has been rolled away and your freedom is waiting. Wake up! Come out! Get up! Because He lives, you live. Don’t take another moment for granted.

Because Jesus lives!
